I was on a conference call when my co-worker came by and quietly dropped something off at my desk. I didn’t think much of it – I assumed it was a report or some mail. When the call ended, I looked down and saw that she had given me this amazing #MomLife adult coloring book and pencils. I could have burst into tears … how lucky was I to have been on the receiving end of this act of kindness? I later told her it was one of the nicest things to happen to me in 2018.
All of my coworkers know that I wear two hats, always at the same time. I’m a mom and an employee. All at once. There’s no separation for this momming worker. And I feel so fortunate that I work at a company where I can be my true, authentic, mom hair and all self. You hear moms talk all the time about their “village” who helps them get through the long days and nights of this motherhood journey. My wonderful co-workers are members of my village. I couldn’t do this without them! I’m so thankful to have them in my life.
